PLP: Condolences On Passing Of Dr. Munroe

November 10, 2014

Following the death of prominent Bahamian faith leader Rev. Dr. Myles Munroe, Opposition Leader Marc Bean has extended his condolences to his friends and family, as well as to the nation of Bahamas.

Rev Munroe and his wife were among nine people who died when a private Lear jet crashed on approach near Grand Bahama International Airport on Sunday [Nov 9].

The Associated Press report that the Lear 36 Executive Jet had taken off from the Bahamian capital of Nassau and crashed while attempting to land around 5pm local time in Freeport.

Mr. Bean said, “I give my personal heartfelt and most sincere condolences to our relatives and friends in the Bahamas, friends and family of Rev. Dr. Myles Munroe, and to the nation of Bahamas, who mourn this tragic loss.

“In 2004, as a member of the Bermuda Independence Commission, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dr. Munroe in Bahamas when I visited along with Dame Lois Browne-Evans, my PLP colleague, Derrick Burgess JP MP, and Bishop Vernon Lambe, a close friend and spiritual brother of Dr. Munroe.

“Dr. Munroe was certainly a friend to Bermuda, and he will certainly be missed. He was a loyal son of Bahamas, but a friend to many outside of Bahamas. He was a cousin to my wife, Simone, and her family is devastated by this tragedy.

“Our prayers are with the families of all nine who perished in this tragedy, and with the nation of Bahamas at this time.

“I also extend condolences on behalf of the Bermuda Progressive Labour Party. Our relationship with Bahamas extends back many decades. During this terrible time, we want the people of Bahamas to know they are in our thoughts and prayers.”
